Peak Performance at 53W53

Tuesday, December 18, 2018

In mid-December, the highest piece of the enclosure capped Jean Nouvel’s 53W53 skyscraper over Midtown. Enclos crews worked to safely fly the 42,000 lbs wedge-shaped mega-unit that forms Apex 1 to a height of 1,100´ before lowering it to its final position at 1,050´, making it currently the 7th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City.
